    I have 2 PCs to Connect together to share files. PC1 is using Windows ME and
    PC2 is using Windows XP.

    I understand the principles of creating an ethernet connection using my 3Com
    network cards and a piece of crossover cable.

    I am totally ignorant of USB Networking, in other words using the USB port
    on these computers and connecting the computers via this method.

    What cable/device do I need to connect the computers with USB ?

    What steps are required to configure USB on Me and XP ? Perhaps there is a tutorial
    some one would recommend me.

    What kinds of speed can I expect using USB ?

    Thanks for any help.

    If you've got the NICs then use them - it's a far better solution than
    USB, and the USB "network" cables aren't cheap.
